Summary: My wife and I are really enjoying this well produced game. If you like city building games like Pharaoh, Caesar III, Children of the Nile, and of course all the older Settlers games (like Settlers III) you will really like this game.
Summary: The only problems with this game in in the skirmish you have to purchase most of the maps to play them and I feel the game cost enough without having to spend more. Starting the game each time and ending the game takes too much time.
Summary: I was a big fan of Settlers II. The way the game ristricted you with
bondaries and limited build positions. Yet gave you freedom to chose exactly
where and which way to go at the same time was great.
The battle system is easy to understand.
Summary: Settlers is a great game, ill admit that. Currently, this game has a few bugs. Every 10 or so minutes it will freeze
for 20 secondsunless updated to patch 1.3, which also has a few bugs of the
auto-save feature deleting your gold and acheivements.
Excerpt: This is truly the best Strategy PC game i have ever played in my opinion. The game allows you to play in many differnt type of game modes, from campaign where each level you complete missions and to skirmishes where you play games against the computer.
Pros: Will have you blown away
Cons: need a constant internet connection to play .
